More than 7 ways to chase…

We are all chasing after something. For men, we chase after purpose, pride and passion. Those 3 things are often changing in priority in the chase, but they still remain our pursuit.

The problem is that we try to find those things in the following:

– Sports / fantasy leagues / recreational leagues / semi-pro leagues

– Hobbies / hunting / fishing / hunting / archery / shooting / golf

– Impulsive purchases / cars / boats / tools / atvs / toys

We are wanting to be the hero above all other men, so we pursue these things alongside of our comrades with the hope and idea that we will outdo them and leave them in our dust, even if it is done in the name of friendship and fellowship.

What if we stopped chasing after something unattainable and temporary and began chasing after the love and respect of our bride? Might she reciprocate the admiration, heroism, respect and love that we are seeking in these other frivolous pursuits? Might she esteem us in ways that our buddies simply cannot?

Men were created to lead their wives and others, but often we end up leaving our wives and others behind in our prideful pursuits. And we wonder why the home is often not our sanctuary? We wonder why their criticism brewing from our spouses? Perhaps it’s because we aren’t laying our lives down practically and spiritually for them.

This book will equip and encourage you to get off the wrong path of pursuits and onto the right pursuit, which will enrich you in ways that sports, hobbies and purchases simply can’t and will never do.
